Wild Things

From award-winning Douglas Clegg comes a special quartet of stories dealing with creatures of the wild— wolf, bird, and the most terrifying of beasts: the human variety.

The Wolf

A hunter guides a younger man up a mountain to track down the creature that has been slaughtering in the valley below.

The American

At a late-night cafe in Rome, foreigners gather. On this particular night a stranger steps out of the shadowy park to sit at the sidewalk tables and speak of love — and murder.

A Madness of Starlings

A father, teaching his children about protection from the predators of life, takes in a fledgling bird. But when it’s time for the bird to fly away, the forces of nature begin to come undone…

The Dark Game

A war hero and his men are captured and taken into a prison camp. There, tortures and torments await them, but the man named Gordon Raglan embraces the darkness…
